ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE ‘VITAMIN C’ – OUT NOW
+ OCTOBER UK HEADLINE DATES
“Clean Cut Kid write brilliant songs that are the equivalent of a sugar rush, with an aftertaste of bitters” Sunday Times Culture
“As bold and adventurous a debut as you get” The Sun
Liverpool’s peppy fuzz-pop supremos Clean Cut Kid today announce details of their new single and a headline tour in October. The four-piece are one of the most exciting breakthrough bands in the UK with an inventive take on anthemic guitar-pop. ‘Vitamin C’ is available on all digital partners through the band’s own Babe Magnet Records/Polydor and coincides with the announcement of a 10-date nationwide headline tour in October. Clean Cut Kid are also announced as special guests of The Killers at British Summer Time in Hyde Park on July 8th.
‘Vitamin C’ is a bounding three-minute slice of jubilant art-pop, armed with a triumphant chorus and a gliding, undeniable groove. It has already exceeded 2 million streams.
‘Vitamin C’ is taken from Clean Cut Kid’s exhilarating debut album ‘Felt’ which was released in May to rave reviews. It showcases a band full of creativity, who mix classic melodicism with a sonic adventurousness. It was recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios with Blossoms and The Coral producer Rich Turvey, London’s Konk Studios with Arcade Fire collaborator Craig Silvey and London’s Voltaire Studios with Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, Wolf Alice). What emerges is a contemporary indie-pop record filled with defiant pop hooks and emotionally-charged fragility.
Clean Cut Kid recently wrapped a nationwide headline tour as well as a run of dates supporting Michael Kiwanuka. With the same relentless touring spirit that has seen them play 145 shows over the past 18 months, the band have announced a 10-date headline tour in October as well as performances at British Summer Time, TRNSMT and Camp Bestival to name but a few.
